Hello XDA-Users,

today i want to present you the first open Version of my Windows Mobile application "Mobadi". Its also my first post here.
This is a little application to discharge and monitor your internal battery.
Actual it will support only different HTC Devices and the Sony Ericsson X1i (Xperia), but Versions for non-HTC Devices are comming up soon. The downloadable Version will already run on VGA and non-VGA Devices.

In some test, Mobadi have increased the used mAh up to 370%! So the Bettery will discharge faster.

On older devices like the Trinity, the Bettery-Percentage are 5% or 10%-Steps. So the Diagram are not so detailed like on the Touch-Versions.

Please be so kind to post your ideas, criticism and comments about Mobadi. But remember, BETA!!
And if you want, please tell me witch device you own that run Mobadi.

<-- a "Mobadi" !
actual version: 1.0.09.0519 (beta)

Download:

Caution:
At the Update from 1.9.518 to 1.9.519 you must uninstall the older Version first.
Because of an wrong Name in the old Version, it will not update automatically. For the next Updates you dont have to do this.

Please
If you want to post this Application on other Websites and Forums, place a Link to this Post. Here you will get allways actual Versions and Informations.

Code:
ToDo:
- export to csv / md (own filetype)
- windows desktop application for detailed information
- viewmode "latest" and options
- fix diagramm error after long time under "viewmode all"
- disable background-worker while discharge
- using camera/light for discharge
- display current values under diagram
tested Devices:
- HTC Touch Pro
- HTC Touch HD
- HTC Touch Diamond
- HTC Touch Cruise
- HTC Trinity

Interesting. Can you tell us how the discharge works? What is the current draw in discharge mode?

Hey,

finally it will use different ways to discharge the battery.

The actual implemented:
- Backlight, will be permanently on. The Level can be set in the Options.
- BackgroundWorker, stress the CPU with Math-Operations. (slow down the device while in Discharge-Mode)

Comming up:
- CameraLED (TouchPro)
- Camera Access (still testing, )
- Backlight behind Softkeys (maybe)

All features will actualy be tested.
More detailed Information will have some time. At the moment i use some Devices in a "Laboratory Enviroment" to get some usefull results.

I;m not any kind of guru or anything, but why would you want to do that to a lithium battery? you **aren't** supposed to do that to lithium batteries. do a little bit of searching using google please.

Well...
To store a LiIon battery, you should discharge it to
about 40% and keep it room temp.

That could be feature, to discharge it untill a certain level .
(but never 0%, although I guess the manufacturer already built
in such protection or safety margin)

to complement my last post:

I do test the power drain of my devices.
That way I can calculate what kind of car adapter I need to not let
it discharge while using hsdpa and wifi simultaneous
(to share internet to the car-pc )

But most of the times I measure by observation..
Some ROMs perform better than others. This tool could provide insight.

btw, you can check electromagnetic radiation and see differences between 2G and 3G like this.. as a proof to battery usage differences

You stated one could use this application to also monitor battery usage over normal use by disabling the backlight override and background worker, I am wondering if this does this fully eliminate the negative battery drain increased by this application?
I am currently running a battery drain trail that examines the current raphael radios effect directly on battery life through normal usage and I have been on the lookout for a battery monitor application that does not effect normal usage of the phone nor cause negative effects on battery life.

All of the currently available free applications I have found and tested are either inconsistent in their monitoring of battery life or greatly influence the battery life themselves causing inconsistent drain. While I see the usage of this application and commend you for your work thus far, as a suggestion for the future you may wish to look into creating simply a monitor. One that either every given time interval, kicks the phone out of sleep for a second, logs the battery level and time and goes back to sleep. Or simply logs the battery level and time every instance where the phone is taken out of standby / sleep. Either one would serve the community greatly as a battery application that accurately logs the drain without horribly influencing the battery life. One that any user could run without any major negative effects.

This is years old, but hey - I just discovered it today . Here's the htcutil.dll file:

I have an old HP Data Messenger and fixed the app's missing dll error by placing that file in the Windows folder.
